Hey trimer, just a suggestion... a Motive power bleeder isn't that expensive and is really easy to use. Given that it is recommended that you bleed your brakes every two years, this tool would pay for itself very quickly. You can do a much better job of painting your calipers if you remove them from the car first.

You will also need 10mm and 11mm flare wrenches, a 10mm hex socket, and a torque wrench for re-assembly. The wrenches and the hex socket need to be hi-end (Snap-on, Mac) or it all will end in tears and rounded fittings. You will also want some rubber stoppers to plug the fitting holes during painting.

Check Pedro's tutorial - it really isn't a difficult or challenging job at all.
